The agency says that it will be providing an updated advisory for healthcare officials later this week.
DTW is among 20 airports around the country that recently began testing.
The district health department on Tuesday began the process of screening passengers arriving by worldwide flights at the Madurai global Airport for any presence of the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV), which was first reported from Wuhan, China. Newark Liberty is the nation's fifth busiest airport. However, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said Tuesday that worry about the virus should not impact Americans' day-to-day lives.
San Bernandino was originally chosen to be the landing point for the evacuees, the Ontario International Airport was designated roughly 10 years ago, but this would have been the first time the airport was used for national health emergency reasons. The CDC has investigated a total of 110 possible cases in the United States.
Due to the outbreak of the virus, hundreds of Americans who are in Wuhan, China are being evacuated, but one American man said he isn't going anywhere. They respond to reports of illnesses on airplanes and other vessels, make health assessments, distribute medication, and prepare for emergencies.
The death toll in China continues to rise as 132 people have died from the virus and nearly 6,000 cases of the virus have been reported.
At the moment, China has confirmed over 4,500 people with Coronavirus.
The incubation period of this virus can be anywhere from two to 14 days, so some might arrive without showing any symptoms.
San Francisco Native Doug Perez said he can't leave China because his Chinese girlfriend and their dog can't come with him. If you or someone you know shows any of the symptoms-including runnny nose, cough, headache, sore throat and fever-you are urged to contact your doctor.
The department also ordered personnel working at the US Consulate General in Wuhan - the epicenter of the outbreak - to depart for the United States, the official said in a statement Monday. The hope is that this test can be used to help state health departments speed the diagnoses process.
